Teacher Testimonials

“We cannot recommend Teach English Global enough! Dan has coached us through every aspect of the application process; from tailoring our CVs for specific roles to explaining the lengthy and ever-changing pandemic visa process. We thought that securing roles in the same school would be an extra hurdle to manage but Dan expertly mediated with schools in China on our behalf, ensuring that all our needs were met. If you’re thinking about embarking on a new adventure teaching in China, the process could not be easier with Teach English Global.”

Katie & Georgie (UK) - Teaching in Shanghai

“I contacted Teach English Global after arriving in Shanghai and deciding I would like to teach English. I was quite nervous since I had never taught in a school setting before, but Dan told me what to expect and encouraged me that I would make a great teacher. The process moved quickly and Dan was helpful with every step. He found me a well-suited position with a beautiful school that I love! I’m not sure I would have taken the leap to teach in China if it wasn’t for Dan’s guidance and encouragement. I highly recommend Teach English Global!”

Amber (USA) - Teaching in Shanghai

“Working with Dan and Teach English Global has been an absolute pleasure! As a former ESL teacher in China, Dan instantly knew what I’d been looking for and he was also very insightful about the school and its recruitment process. Dan is a hardworking, well-informed professional, and he will ensure that you find a school that appreciates your skills and aligns with your professional developments goals. Dan is also very easy to communicate with and I felt very supported by him throughout the entire recruitment process. He was always happy to answer my questions, and he checked in regularly in order to ensure that the transition to my new school went smoothly. I would definitely recommend Teach English Global to anyone looking to teach English in Asia!”

Thabitha (South Africa) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“Towards the end of my time studying at university in China, I was determined to find an English teaching job so that I could remain in the country. However, the pandemic then hit, and I was suddenly stuck outside with it proving difficult to return. With regulations constantly changing and companies shutting down, I worried if I’d ever get myself back out to China…… enter Dan from Teach English Global. I was recommended Dan by a friend who had used his help to find a teaching position, so I thought reaching out to him was worth a shot – it ended up being one of the best ideas I’ve ever had! Dan has managed to get me back into China, in my preferred city (Beijing), working at a brilliant school! Throughout the entire process, he has been kind, honest, a great laugh, and super helpful in answering my many questions and messages! Whenever there was an update (good or bad), he would instantly let me know, and then help me accordingly. When my time came to enter China from the UK, he was extremely informative on all rules and regulations, as well as ensuring I had everything required in order to successfully enter the country. I really don’t think I could have got back into China without him and his company, and I really don’t think I can ever thank him fully for everything!”

Nicola (UK) - Teaching in Beijing

“Teach English Global has gone above and beyond for me. Looking for a teaching job in Beijing during a pandemic seemed like an impossible task, but Dan truly made it possible. I briefly sought out other recruitment companies, but none of them were as kind, insightful, or deliberate as Teach English Global. Dan has helped me every step of the way, from finding the best school for me, the interview process, all the way to the visa process. He was excited to answer my questions and hear updates, and I could tell that he cared about helping me through this process. I enthusiastically recommend Teach English Global to anyone who is looking to teach English in China!”

Autumn (USA) - Teaching in Beijing

“When I first looked at getting a job in China, it seemed like a very distant possibility, especially in view of the global situation. Fortunately, I had Dan to help me along every step of the way. He negotiated on my behalf with the school, even managing to get me a higher salary than I had expected. He then helped me through every subsequent stage of getting my new job, as well as every stage of the visa application process. He has also helped with me getting a flight to China, which at the moment remains to be much trickier than usual. I now have my visa, my job, and have arrived in China ready to start my new job and life! Thank you, Dan!”

Patrick (UK) - Teaching in Beijing

“I made the decision to completely swap career choices in 2021 and set my heart on teaching English in China. Even after completing my TEFL, I was still really nervous about teaching in a new country for the first time (as well as Covid restrictions), but Dan at Teach English Global made everything a lot easier to understand and was always on hand with great advice and reassurance. Within days of my application Dan called me back, then 2 weeks later arranged an interview for me with a school in China and helped me to prepare. He also helped guide me to get my mandatory documents notarised and legalised correctly for China’s requirements. Not long after that, I was on my way to China via Hong Kong, knowing exactly what I had to do on arrival to successfully enter the country. I had weekly conversations with Dan to advise on my progress through the border crossing, quarantines and training with my new employer in China. I’ve now taught my first full week and feel confident about my future here thanks to the time and effort put in by Dan!”

Joe (UK) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“When I first spoke to Dan at Teach English Global I was fresh out of my TEFL course with no real teaching experience and no idea how to find work in a foreign country. I first spoke to Dan on a Monday morning and had a job offer in hand literally one week later on the following Monday. Four months after my first communication with Dan I had an excellent job teaching in Shenzhen. Dan helped me through the visa process, helped me arrange my flight, and talked me through the first few weeks in China. I would not be where I am today without his help.”

Brandon (USA) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“Teach English Global helped me find a great teaching position in Beijing that matched my experience level and preferences well. Getting to China was a lengthy process, but it was made simple by the constant guidance and support I received. Thanks to TEG I’m now gaining teaching experience at a great school, and I would recommend using TEG to any teacher who wants to come to China!”

Evan (USA) - Teaching in Beijing

“Teach English Global was the first and only recruiter I used to get to China. I was genuinely surprised at how attentive, helpful and knowledgeable Dan has been from the beginning of my search for a teaching job. I’ve never taught before, so Dan helped tailor my CV and build my confidence to succeed in interviews. There were a lot of steps involved to get me to Guangzhou, and Dan expertly guided me through each one. Even though there were multiple setbacks along the way, Dan kept me motivated throughout the entire process. I recommend using Teach English Global for Dan’s personal and well-connected services. He turned a complete pipe-dream into reality for me!”

Louis (UK) - Teaching in Guangzhou

“Moving to China to begin anew is a daunting prospect at any time, let alone in the midst of a global pandemic. However, Dan at Teach English Global was a constant voice of competence and reassurance at each stage of the process. Within a week of having contacted me, Dan had already arranged an interview with a school in Beijing that was fully capable of securing the necessary documents to allow me to work legally in the People’s Republic of China. Throughout the Visa process, I was offered constant guidance from Dan regarding everything from document authentication to the best method of posting said documents to Beijing. Additionally, Teach English Global offered invaluable advice in securing transportation to China during this rather turbulent time to ensure my landing was safe, figuratively and literally.”

Chris (USA) - Teaching in Beijing

“During what was my hardest time in China, when I was trying to navigate finding a new teaching position before my visa expired, Dan at Teach English Global was my saviour! Dan is amazing, he was extremely attentive to my personal situation, and he listened carefully so that he could match me up with a school that met my requirements. The support, patience and understanding that I received from Dan went above and beyond what I expected! If you’re looking for a new teaching position and want the help of a recruiter, then Teach English Global is the one you need on your side!”

Mpumi (South Africa) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“I had an excellent recruiting experience with Dan, the head honcho of Teach English Global. From start to finish, Dan coached me through every step of the lengthy hiring and visa process for teaching in China. He made sure to find opportunities that suited my stated needs and checked in often to make sure that the process was going smoothly. As someone who has taught in China himself, Dan understands what it’s like to be in the job seeker’s shoes and is swift and effective at facilitating solutions and providing encouragement during difficult and complex process steps. I wholeheartedly, 10/10 recommend Dan and Teach English Global to anyone seeking a professional to help them find, negotiate and secure a teaching job in China!”

Kai (USA) - Teaching in Yueyang

“From start to finish, working with Dan at TEG was an absolute pleasure! Dan encouraged me to apply for a role I hadn’t previously considered, which has helped me advance my teaching career and opened up an exciting new opportunity in Beijing. Dan was always on hand to help me with the paperwork required for entry into China and kept me on track throughout the visa process. His guidance and professionalism were received gratefully during a very challenging few months, and I’m thankful for his invaluable assistance in getting me to China!”

Laurence (UK) - Teaching in Beijing

“We could not have found our brilliant new jobs in Shenzhen without Teach English Global. For us, good communication is very important, and the communication we had with Dan throughout the entire process was amazing! He was professional, supportive, and negotiated with our kindergarten to help us get great offers. If we had any questions, he was there to answer them, and if he didn’t know the answer he’d find out for us. At times when we freaked out or felt stressed, he stayed calm and made sure we stayed calm as well. We could not have asked for better service, and would highly recommend Teach English Global to anyone who is looking for a new teaching position in China!”

Ben & Dineen (South Africa) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“Dan was super helpful during the entire process of finding me a teaching position in Shenzhen. We faced a setback early on when the first school I was placed at had to withdraw their offer due to unforeseen circumstances. I thought that this would cause a considerable delay, but Dan managed to find me another school less than a week after the bad news, and even managed to increase my salary! I was amazed at his efficiency, after what I expected would have delayed the process by months. He was always in contact whenever I needed him, and guided me through the visa process. He gave me valuable and up-to-date advice about the pandemic policies, resulting in an easy journey and quarantine process when I first arrived. TEG clearly know what they’re doing, and I wholeheartedly recommend them if you’re looking for a teaching position in China!”

Sam (UK) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“I can’t recommend Teach English Global enough for anyone looking to teach English in China! Dan helped me find a position with a great school in Beijing, assisted me with the entire visa process, helped me navigate the changing covid restrictions, and has provided assistance and support since I arrived in China. Throughout the whole process, Dan was on hand to answer any questions I had, and help solve any issues we encountered. He is extremely well connected in both the UK and China, which made the whole experience as stress-free as possible!”

Lauryn (UK) - Teaching in Beijing

“At the end of 2021, I found myself in an unimaginable situation with no job, a new passport and only 2 weeks left on my temporary stay permit in China. After reaching out to Teach English Global, Dan instantly got me interviews with good schools and was a valuable ally in my time of stress. Through daily communication and updates, he was able to find me a great school that would be able to get me a new work visa in time, right when I thought I’d be going back home to South Africa. Dan showed up for me even on my worst days when I’d given up on even staying in China. Thank you for holding my hand at the beginning, during and after the job transition process!”

Lerato (South Africa) - Teaching in Beijing

“Finding a job while you are in China is somewhat easy, but finding a job that caters to your individual needs as a teacher is extremely difficult. I’ve had three jobs since I first landed in China, so I’ve dealt with many recruiters, agencies and schools. However, working with Dan from Teach English Global was an absolute pleasure! He managed to get me an offer that I’m very happy with and helped me to negotiate with my school the terms and conditions I was looking for. Dan made me very comfortable, and even without his physical presence, he made sure that we communicated regularly and helped me transition into my new role! Thank you so much Teach English Global!”

Kea (South Africa) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“I wouldn’t have made it to China without Teach English Global! Dan worked fast to find me a suitable position, and within two weeks of our first chat I had accepted a job offer and was already preparing for the move. Dan has been in constant contact with me since then, helping me get my visa, communicating with the school for me, and answering any questions I have. Even now I’ve arrived in China, he’s still on hand to give advice as I get settled in. His expertise has been invaluable at every step. I highly recommend Teach English Global to anyone wanting to make their teaching journey as smooth as possible.”

Alice (UK) - Teaching in Shanghai

“I first reached out to Teach English Global in May 2022. Following my initial call with Dan, I was confident he understood what type of teaching position I was looking for in China. Within a few days of our call, he’d arranged a job interview for me with a company in Shenzhen, and soon after I was offered a position that matched all of my expectations! Dan guided me through each step of the visa process, and recommended a helpful visa agency that authenticated all of my documents in just three weeks! Teach English Global made this opportunity possible for me, and I can’t thank Dan enough for all of his help!”

Lauren (USA) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“TEG are the only recruitment agency I would recommend if you are considering moving to China! I had quite a unique teaching CV and I also had a bit of life admin to take care of before moving to China, but this was no problem for them and they helped me secure a teaching position with a school in Shanghai very quickly. I received constant (and reassuring) help all the way through the process and anything that may have been on my mind was answered swiftly and professionally. I can’t thank TEG enough for placing me at my current school in Shanghai, and thanks to them I’m very excited about my future in China!”

Max (UK) - Teaching in Shanghai

“Dan the man – I call him that because he is! Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was left unemployed in Shanghai and in need of a job ASAP before my visa expired. I reached out to Dan at Teach English Global to see if he could help, and I’m so glad that I did. He set me up with some great opportunities, and managed to find me a new teaching job that matched what I was looking for in very little time!”

Jasmine (USA) - Teaching in Shanghai

“My experience with Teach English Global was fantastic! Dan guided me through every step of the recruitment process, was always available when I needed assistance and he even checked up on me several times during my first weeks at my new school. If you’re thinking about changing teaching jobs, then I would definitely recommend using the help of Teach English Global. Their professional and quick service made finding my next teaching position in China simple and stress-free. Thank you Teach English Global!”

Abhisek (UK) - Teaching in Hangzhou

“I contacted Teach English Global when looking for a teaching opportunity in China, and within one week of speaking to Dan, I had an amazing job in Beijing secured! I cannot thank Dan enough for how much he’s helped me over the last few months. He expertly guided me through the entire visa process from start to finish. He was always up to date with the latest travel and quarantine restrictions in place (caused by the pandemic), and he helped me find the most affordable way of entering China during a difficult period. I’ve never worked with another recruitment company that goes to such lengths to help their teachers beyond job placement. Therefore, I can confidently say that Teach English Global is the best recruiter in the game, and I would strongly recommend them to any teacher who is looking to secure a teaching opportunity in China!”

Thobile (South Africa) - Teaching in Beijing

“I couldn’t be happier with TEG, they’ve been fantastic! The process of finding a teaching position and moving to China can look very daunting. However, with Dan’s guidance and constant efforts, this process is made simple. He’s there every step of the way, ready to answer any question and help you out, no matter how small the detail. If you’re planning to teach abroad, in China or Korea, then Teach English Global is the company that will get you there!” 

Ryan (UK) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“I first found out about Teach English Global through one of the TEFL job boards. Since speaking to Dan, I’ve felt like I’ve been in safe hands, which is what I really needed to get into China. Dan has been with me every step of the way, and he helped me to get through the various challenges I had, from the visa process all the way through to the travelling arrangements. His contacts in China are just as brilliant, and I would be lost without them all. If you’re a teacher looking for an opportunity in China or South Korea, then I would definitely recommend Teach English Global – you won’t be disappointed!”
